The crisis-hit countries were facing increased demand for liquidation of foreign currency claims rather than a speculative currency attack. At the height of the crisis, however, it was not clear whether any level of interest rates offered by East Asian borrowers would have been high enough to induce foreign banks to roll over their loans.

Nevertheless, the relative importance of the banking sector to capital markets deserves further analyses because it is largely unknown whether differences in the financial structure have any bearing on financial markets’ susceptibility to financial speculation, panic, and mania. 3. THE ROLE OF FINANCE IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN EAST ASIA Empirical studies on correlation between economic development and financial sophistication suggest financial institutions and markets play an important role in economic growth and development.

Accordingly, a large number of recent studies on the 1997–98 East Asian crisis have identified the structural weakness of East Asia’s bank-based financial system as being one of the major causes of the crisis.
